The 73 meter long passenger ship Sandnes ran aground in the Lindøy Sound near South Rogaland, Norway. The Sandnes was on a sightseeing tour when it struck bottom. The hull suffered damage and water ingress, but the vessel’s pumps were able to control the flooding. The vessel requested assistance with a lifeboat dispatched to the scene. The lifeboat had divers who inspected the hull while assisting the Sandnes in its refloating efforts. The passenger vessel was refloated a short time later and proceeded to Stavanger. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
